Don't you think rainy days are meant for being a slug and stitching? Me too. Unfortunately that's just not in the cards for me on this rainy day, But you know what, I can dream! So while I imagine I'm practicing my best slug skills, allow me to catch you up on some finishes.
Many, many moons ago (aka December 2012) I got a couple pieces back from the finisher and I never posted them. How lame is that? First up a little cube needlepoint ornie to commemorate my first trip to NY.
Funnily enough this last Christmas I went to NY again. Want proof?
I guess you know this means I need another NY ornie. Anyone got a vote on what I ought to commemorate this time? I think I'm leaning to the Rockefeller Center tree since that's where my sister contends I picked a fight with a strange man. For the record, *I*, gentle reader, did not pick any fight. I was picked upon. *And* he was a dufus.
The following ornie is also done by "the new finisher" -- who did up this little heart just perfectly -- For the record, it commemorates nothing... or possibly it commemorates me and my TNNA stashing since I ordered this one year at the show-- 2011 I think.
And I have certainly not abandoned my xs. Mostly I've been sorting it -- you know, "cleaning" by moving it from pile to pile (merely, as we all know, an excuse for fondling it and dreaming about new starts). But a couple weeks ago I failed to post progress on my By the Bay summer mystery SAL --
Since this is my commuter bus piece and I have taken it out of my tote bag, I doubt you'll see much progress on it in the coming weeks. Wish it well while it takes a little commuting holiday.
Here's wishing you a peaceful rest of your day full of frog-free stitching .... and even a new start if that would make you as happy as it generally makes me.
